"Triathlon is already a family driven sport and when we combine the sport with the unique lake experience Grenada offers, we find many athletes and volunteers returning here as their Father?s Day destination. By combining the Championship Races with the 70.3 distance race we?ve opened the door for both father and son/daughter to participate, creating a very special weekend experience.? - Race Director Thomas Walls

New this year is the Father's Day challenge open to athletes racing events on both days or father and son/daughter combos racing in any combination.
